I have always wondered why prototypes are covered in weird paint, strange wraps, or endless vinyl cladding like this one. If it wasn't for that, they would be much harder to notice. At any given time, most cars look alike. This one, taken in late 2008, was probably the Chevy Traverse, which is good enough, but not exactly exciting.
I wonder who thinks they need to dodge the imaginary paparazzi. I have talked to guys at the driving companies, and they don't worry about it at all.
